Forum: movies Subject: Pls try these fast movies

we are testing a faster download system called "freecache" (it is kind of an automatic mirroring system). it is turned on for the movies, as you can see from the details pages.

we would appreciate some feedback on how fast it is to download movies through this system. Specifically, there are some movies on an Internet2 host that you can see at the following URL. Pls try downloading a movie from that list and post how fast you got them:

thank you!

American Look is coming from that Internet 2 site at just under 200k/sec. We have multiple T3's feeding a 100baseT LAN, so I would expect a bit more...

I'm currently getting Duck and Cover from the Internet2 link at a speed that's max-ing out my DSL bandwidth - about 130k/sec? I noticed that the Etree files that have been mirrored on Internet2 were similarly fast - must be quite a quick mirror :)

someone got 1500KBytes/sec (yes that is about 12Megabits/sec). it is good to hear that it is fast for others.
